Temps will struggle to cool off much at all this evening. Heat index values will stay near 100 through 11 pm.

Morning low's will stay above 80 degrees. Afternoon high's will be in the upper 90's with heat index values between 105 - 110 degrees. 

It will be hottest between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. That's the time to take plenty of breaks in the A/C. Children and the elderly are most susceptible to heat exhaustion.

Dust from the Sahara Desert has arrived making for hazy skies for the rest of the week and through the weekend. 

There is some positive news in this scorching forecast. That dust helps to suppress tropical storm formation. The tropics are quiet and no tropical cyclone activity is expected within the next 48 hours.
